|Mystified - Hunting Collecting [nsh101] - Mystified|
Alternating between rhythmic pieces ("Trickle Down Side Stick Mix"), manipulations of homemade sounds ("Rubber TV") and good old-fashioned drones ("Recycled RM"), and featuring an excerpt from the epic "Trash Everest" (in Thomas' own words: "to take something small or ordinary and make it sound much larger than it is"), "Hunting Collecting" features all the variation and intrigue we have come to expect from the busiest man in netlabels.
|mystified- Constant 16 [treetrunk059] - mystified|
"Constant 16" is a longform drone piece created using radio signals generated by the Earth, granular synthesis, and a variety of other processes. "Constant" pieces are works of minimal drone that tend to use a "less is more" approach. The idea of these songs is to create the least possible ambient drone material necessary for listening. Mystified created the first "Constant" on Webbed Hand Records ( http://www.webbedhandrecords.com )...

The overall sound is bolder and noisier, and successfully blends elements of noise, dark ambient and home-taped sound in a way that cleverly avoids easy classification. The sounds are sometimes lush and dense, other times sparse and gritty, but all throughout this release and its many moods, the sonic perspective that...

Other mysterious sounds make periodic visits, and the whole effect is a pleasant mix of slowly cycling highs and lows. This album was Produced by Thomas Park, and includes a sample by c...
